Private Workshops: If you’ve been looking for a way to jumpstart your photographic techniques for photographing cars, our private workshops are a great and affordable way to start. Sessions are 90 minutes long, cost $75 (cash or check) and are held at Cars & Coffee events in Parker, Castle Rock and Colorado Springs.

These are one-on-one sessions where you will get to ask questions as we walk through the show discussing the right choice of lens for a specific kind of car, type of shooting situations such as dealing with the sometimes crowded areas that you’ll encounter at indoor or outdoor car shows and Cars & Coffee events. I’ll show you how to cope with exposure conditions for dark and light colored cars, how to use flash to light a car’s undercarriage.

These private workshops are aimed at both DSLR or mirrorless camera users, and I will be working with whichever of these camera types, although maybe not your exact camera brand—see the Gear section— that you use so there is no confusion about my use of a particular technique. I’m looking forward to working with you. Just click on the Contact tab above and send me a note so we can pick the most appropriate car show for your schedule.

Mentoring: During my portfolio reviews for charity, several photographers asked about providing a one-on-one mentoring service to help them jump-start their photography. Since you asked for such a program, here it is:


Whether it’s a hobby, profession or you want to turn your hobby into a profession, I can help. Mentoring sessions are in one-hour increments and customizable to focus on your needs and specific questions. The most efficient way to approach these sessions is, prior to the mentoring session, e-mail me a list of items you want to discuss and we’ll work through them in the time allotted. Follow-up sessions will help answer questions but anyone using the service can e-mail me later with additional questions at no additional cost.

The cost of these sessions is $45/hour with a 2-hour minimum and payment is via PayPal for out-of-state photographers. If you live and/or are visiting the Denver Metro Area, sessions can be conducted face-to-face or can be held via Skype, FaceTime or phone, whatever is most convenient for you. Mentoring sessions are appointment only; click the Contact page above and let’s get started.
